Chapel Courtyard Panorama Story in Tile

Story in Tile


a man tells of his success in tiles in his retirement mansion


born in the county


where he tended the cows


met a man from the city


who apprenticed him to make hats


did well in business, and took over the shop


entered society


and built his retirement mansion
where the tiles remained on the wall for many years







style later copied in the Netherlands
